Can someone tell me if I have done this right. The question I am working on is...

A cyclist is going 10m/sec around a 20 m radius turn. If they weight 60kg and the coefficient of static friction is 0.2, will the make the turn or skid into a crash??

I found the maximun speed the cyclist could go around the turn with out skidding and got 6.2 m/sec. Then I assumed that becasue it was slower then what the cyclist was travelling they would skid when going around teh turn.

Have I done this right or should I have gone a different route in doing this?
